To mark the UN International Day of Peace on 21 September, Conflict Kitchen London is partnering with the Queen of Hoxton – a music-led arts space in East London – and three renowned Middle Eastern chefs for a weekend of food and conversation on the rooftop bar.
The innovative pop-up champions the idea of peace through food by inviting strangers to sit down together, share a meal and strike up conversation.
This rooftop Conflict Kitchen London will take on a different Middle Eastern grill theme, serving recipes from top chefs Yotam Ottolenghi, Anissa Helou and Claudia Roden. The dishes will be accompanied by a fine selection of cocktails, drawing on authentic ingredients from across the Middle East.
A range of artists will also set up on the rooftop to work on canvas paintings over the weekend, using peace as their inspiration. They will include: Andrea Tyrimos, Hannah Adamaszek, Carolina Maggio, Kef, Mr Shiz and Zina.
Dates: Saturday 20–Sunday 21 September 2014
Time: 12 noon–10pm
Cost: Free entry, dishes start from £7.50
Address: Queen of Hoxton
1-5 Curtain Road
London EC2A 3JX
Conflict Kitchen London is also appearing at Monikers Restaurant from 11–27 September 2014, serving some of the finest dishes from Burma (Myanmar), Jordan and Peru.
